Political Theatrics / October 11, 2009
Former Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh stated in an interview with the UK’s Sunday Times that if sanctions against Iran are not in place by Christmas, Israel may attack Iran on its own. “If no crippling sanctions are introduced by Christmas, Israel will strike,” he said. “If we are left alone, we will act alone.”
Iran’s ambassador to the UN, Mohammad Khazaee, rebuked Sneh’s comments on Saturday and said that “there is no explanation for Israel’s continuing threats against Tehran.” He said he hoped the UN would take steps against such comments. “Remarks such as these, stated once in a while by Israeli leaders, are no more than sorry excuses aimed at avoiding supplying answers regarding Israel’s nuclear arsenal and deflecting public awareness from the crimes and terror Israel commits in the region,” he said.
Israel and some Western countries have taken a harsh line on Iran’s nuclear program, peaceful or otherwise. Khazaee also stated that “the only threat in the region is Israel’s nuclear arsenal, which remains unsupervised to this day.” Israel is believed to be the sole nuclear power in the Middle East with more than 200 nuclear heads, and it is not a signatory for the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) unlike Iran which is a signatory for this treaty.
Recently, Cleric Mojtaba Zolnour, a senior leader of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, said that Iran will “blow up the heart of the Zionist entity” if attacked by either Israel or the United States.

Paul Joseph Watson / Prison Planet – October 10, 2009
The saga of American Police Force and its plans to take over a $27 million dollar detention facility in Hardin Montana came to an end last night with the announcement that the deal was terminated, as the Governor of Montana slammed local officials for becoming “part of the conspiracy” by continuing their dealings with known criminals and con men such as Michael Hilton.
As we reported last week, the deal seemed destined to fail following revelations that the founder of APF, Michael Hilton, was a career criminal who had operated under 17 different aliases, spent three years in prison and still has $1.1 million in outstanding civil judgments against him. This prompted the Governor of Montana to launch an investigation into both APF and local officials.
“Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer upbraided Hardin officials for first striking a deal with what he called “con men” and then defending American Police Force after Hilton’s history emerged,” reports the Associated Press.
“They became part of the conspiracy. They became apologists,” he said of Peterson and others involved in the deal.
Schweitzer added that Hardin residents “need some people to represent them that have some business skills, that are honest and have integrity.”
As we stressed repeatedly, the refusal of local officials to admit that they were engaged in wrongdoing was never going to do anyone any favors. The hostile response that we received for merely emphasizing the fact that Hilton was a career criminal was indicative of locals living in denial of the fact that making deals with convicted con men was always going to turn sour.

The vaccination propaganda is now kicking into overdrive. Earlier today, I switched on the tube and randomly hit two news channels — CNN and Fox — and there was the get the vaccine propaganda. Both channels told me to get the vaccine. Both downplayed the “myths” and “disinformation” about the dangers of the seasonal and H1N1 vaccines.
Supposed experts interviewed by ABC News claim it is unethical to refuse the vaccine. “Does Americans’ right to determine what is best for themselves and their families trump the federal government’s efforts to head off what it believes could be a flu pandemic?” writes Patrick Jonsson for ABC News. “The US government says it has no intention of forcing vaccinations, but its entire flu strategy could be undermined – endangering public health, they say – if a substantial portion of the US population opts out of the $3 billion program.”
The corporate media’s own polls reveal that around two-thirds of parents have serious reservations about the vaccines’ effectiveness and safety. Millions of people simply distrust the government and do not buy into the propaganda.
“Many of the concerns by parents are based on the perception that this vaccine has been rushed into production and may not be safe,” Tom Skinner, a CDC spokesman, told Fox News. “We understand parents’ concerns – they want what is best for their children. We often tell people the best antidote for fear is information. And we ask them to really seek out sound and reliable information from sources they trust.”
According to the CDC, parents need to stop listening to a large number of doctors and virologists who say the vaccines are dangerous and instead get their information exclusively from the corporate media.
The government and the corporate media hate the idea millions of Americans are doing their own research before sticking a needle in their kids. “Just get your damn vaccine,” demanded Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC’s chief medical editor. Snyderman dropped all pretense and revealed the real attitude of the government and the Mockingbird corporate media.
How dare you question the government. Just shut up and roll up your sleeve…
Now you will be told it is irresponsible and unethical not to get a vaccine loaded up with mercury, squalene, preservatives, “attenuated” viruses, and formaldehyde.

In the final minutes of its plunge toward the moon, NASA’s LCROSS spacecraft spotted the brief infrared flash of a rocket booster hitting the lunar surface just ahead of it – and it even saw heat from the crater formed by the impact. But scientists remain puzzled about why the event did not seem to generate a visible plume of debris as expected.
As hundreds of telescopes and observers watched, the highly publicised NASA mission to search for water on the moon reached its grand finale at 0431 PDT (1131 GMT) with a pair of high-speed crashes into a lunar crater named Cabeus.
During the crucial moments at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California, scientists and engineers with LCROSS (Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite) peered in silent concentration as successive images of the crater grew larger on their screens…
